Wish-granting organizations provide wishes to children who have a life-threatening diagnosis. Typically, the wish recipient is diagnosed on or before their 18th birthday, and wishes are not granted to children under the age of 3 unless they are not expected to reach their 3rd birthday.
Wishes are generally divided into three main categories:
Disney trips, shopping sprees and meeting a favorite celebrity are among the most popular wishes. Each wish-granting organization should be consulted directly for eligibility criteria, application process and organization rules. The Complex Care Center at Cincinnati Children's provides information on some of these organizations.
Applications will only be accepted for children diagnosed with a recurrence of cancer between the ages of 5 and 18. Children must also reside in New York, New Jersey, or Pennsylvania. (If exceptional medical circumstances exist for children outside this area you can fill out the application form and contact the foundation). The child applying for the wish must have finished all forms of treatment and been in remission for at least 24 months.
